Better Listen When Meowscular Chef Tells You to Eat Your Greens

You’ve checked all your gear and upgraded it as much as possible. You’ve gone over your item pouch to make sure all your numbers and inventory checks out and you’ve even gone over to your garden to make sure your plants are properly fertilized. What else is there for a hunter to do? You’re definitely going to want to check out the canteen and learn what best foods to order and even start making some of your own custom platters as well. Some of the buffs and bonuses are really worth it and the priceless eating and cooking animations just look so good.


10. Felyne Groomer 

Blights are very common in Monster Hunter World and a build with some blight resistance is great for comfort and survivability.

6. Felyne Moxie

Also providing relief for difficult hunts where everyone is carting is Felyne Moxie which also prevents fainting but under slightly different circumstances; when damage taken exceeds your remaining health. How they measure that out exactly is odd but a free cart in Monster Hunter World is very valuable and of all the Felyne Skills the ones that give you an extra cart seem to be the most valuable. Also stackable with the build skill Guts which has a similar cart avoiding bonus like Felyne Moxie.

5. Unpredictable Platter

The felyne daily skills from eating are one of the most neglected skills in the game but are very important and really should be looked over and stuffed into your already overwhelming preparation for each of what most hunts entail. But they are daily skills so knowing which one to proc is important (Felyne Insurance) and the Unpredictable Platter makes the skill you see in the changing list of skills more likely to activate. 

Food Stats:

  • Activates Daily Food Skills
  • What Makes Unpredictable Platter Awesome:
  • Activate Felyne Insurance Everytime (Once Daily)

4. Veggie Platter

Sometimes a monster’s elemental weakness can seamlessly be defended by simply eating a veggie platter and getting all those great elemental defense buffs. It covers all the elemental bases and frees up some of your build for more attack or comfort tweaks. Just enjoy your Veggie Platter with a gigantic hunk of porkish looking monster meat that they grow outback.

Food Stats:

  • Elemental Res Up (L) 
  • Health +20
  • Stamina +25

3. Meat Platter

The good old Attack Up (L) skill the Meat Platter gives from the canteen to add to your dps when you really want to dig into your target. Combined with Attack buffing Demondrug, Demon Powder and Might Seed it really improves your attack but probably means it will cost your survivability some when compared to other food options. But for situations where survivability is not much of a concern than blast away with your belly full of felyne cooked monster meat.

Food Stats:

  • Attack Up (L)
  • Health +20
  • Stamina +25

Well let it ride because if a cat ever dishes me out something like this I’m down on one knee saying you make me feel like I can do anything, lord your Felyne Skill giving ways over me Chef Meowscular.

1. Felyne Safeguard

At least Capcom came up with a cute and politically correct way of saying you died in Monster Hunter World. Instead of dying you “faint” and it comes with a cute animation after you faint of you getting dumped from a cart or cloth bamboo makeshift gurney looking thingy manned by palicoes at the nearest camp. It really is quite humbling. Do this a certain amount of times (usually 3) as a team and you fail the quest and get sent home with no rewards. Felyne Safeguard works like Felyne Insurance and prevents your group from being penalized the first time a member faints.

Food Stats:

  • Prevents Group From Penalty the First Time a Member Faints
  • What makes Safeguard Meal Awesome:
  • Get One Free Faint
  • Procs Every Time You Eat
